I'm an Agile Project Manager at a startup construction software company. I'm responsible for coaching the Development Team in Agile software development practices and using my multi-year experience in the construction industry to deliver working software that customers love. I also remove impediments from the path of the Development Teams and help manage company initiatives.
Prior to building software in the construction industry, I worked for 15 years implementing enterprise applications as a consultant for Accenture, Deloitte, and Infosys. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from The University of Texas at Austin and my MBA from Texas A&M University.
I began my public speaking career in 2009, and over the subsequent years I have spoken at a number of tech and business conferences on subjects including tailoring Agile practices, effective negotiating skills, and growing as a leader in the technology industry.

I have written for various publications since 2006, and I have authored a number of books and articles for online and print publications. I love breaking down complex ideas into simple concepts and helping people understand how they can be agents of change in the world.
